Spring Bedroom Ideas for Better Sleep
Spring is in the air, and we all know what that means! It’s time to refresh, revamp, and re-emerge from the cold winter months. And what better way to welcome back spring than to give your bedroom a seasonal makeover, which will not only breathe new life into your bedroom but can also help improve your sleep.
Start the day feeling fresh and rejuvenated by making simple design changes to your bedroom
Start by spring cleaning your bedroom
First things first, before you start styling it’s important to declutter and clean your bedroom. Here’s why:
- Reduces stress: A cluttered bedroom can make you feel overwhelmed and stressed, so it will be more difficult to relax and fall asleep.
- Improves air quality: Dust, dirt, and allergens can accumulate in cluttered spaces, which can negatively impact air quality and make it harder to breathe comfortably while you sleep.
- Enhances relaxation: A clean and organised bedroom can create a more calming and soothing environment that promotes relaxation and helps you feel more at ease.
- Increases natural light: Removing clutter from windowsills and other surfaces can allow more natural light to enter your bedroom, which can help regulate your circadian rhythm and improve your sleep quality.
- Promotes healthy habits: Decluttering your bedroom can encourage you to establish healthy sleep habits, such as sticking to a regular sleep schedule and avoiding stimulating activities before bed.

Styling your bedroom with soft and uplifting colours like pastel blues, pinks, greens, and purples, can really help put you in a positive mood when you wake
Throw in some colour
Adding spring colours into your bedroom can have a positive impact on your sleep. A bright and airy palette of pastel blues, greens, purples, and pinks can help to create a sense of calm and relaxation in your sleeping space. Using colours that remind you of spring can also have a psychological effect, making you feel more positive and happier. We’re not saying you have to repaint your entire bedroom to achieve your spring bedroom. Incorporating these colours can be as simple as swapping out your bedding, adding a wool throw blanket, or hanging some artwork.
If you can’t decide which colour looks best, why not get a mix of colours and wake up smiling wrapped in a fluffy rainbow blanket? Our Rainbow Stripe Herringbone Throw comes in three sizes for single, double, or king-size beds. For more advice on how to choose the right size blanket for your bed, check out our handy size guide.
Get comfy and cosy with wool bedding
As we wave goodbye to the cold winter nights, it’s a good idea to switch out your bedding to match the changing temperatures and moods of the season. When transitioning to spring, you can swap out your heavier, warmer duvet for a lighter one. A 2.5 – 7 tog duvet is perfect for spring and summer and 10.5 – 13.5 is ideal for autumn and winter. Night time temperatures can be unpredictable as the seasons change, so layer on a wool blanket that you can pull over the top on chillier nights. We particularly love our merino wool blankets for beds as they're light and soft, while also very warm.
Wool is brilliant for bedding as it's a natural insulator, which means that it can help regulate your body temperature as you sleep. This is particularly useful during spring when temperatures can fluctuate. Wool can help keep you warm when it's cool, and cool when it's warm, providing optimal comfort for a good night's sleep.
Wool is also hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, making it an excellent choice for those with allergies or sensitivities. But ultimately, it’s all about getting cosy and comfy. The soft and luxurious feel of a high-quality wool blanket can make your bed into a comfortable nest where you can drift off to slumberland before waking up refreshed and rejuvenated.

Add beneficial bedroom plants
Including plants in your spring bedroom décor can do wonders for your sleep. Plants not only add a pop of greenery and freshness to your bedroom, but they also have numerous health benefits. Indoor plants can help increase oxygen levels, which can improve breathing and promote a more restful sleep. Additionally, the presence of plants in your bedroom can have psychological benefits by reducing stress and anxiety, which are common factors that can disrupt sleep.
Certain plants, such as lavender and jasmine, have also been known to have natural relaxing properties and can help to promote a calm and peaceful environment in your bedroom. Finally, adding bedroom plants is an easy and affordable way to freshen up the space and incorporate natural elements into your home. So don't hesitate to include a few plants in your bedroom décor this spring and explore biophilic design to enjoy all the benefits they have to offer.
So there you go – a clean slate, a pop of colour, and maybe a snuggly blanket or two with some new plant babies. By redecorating your bedroom for spring, you can kill two birds with one stone. Not only will your room look and feel fresher and more welcoming, but you’ll also be creating a space that’s conducive to a great night’s sleep.
